Week of Protest Since Obama’s Green Light for Hydro-Fracking

4 Jul

from Popular Resistance

All of these anti-fracking actions happened in the week since Obama’s pro-gas climate speech!

Share this if you stand with friends on the shale fields fighting for their survival from the onslaught of fracking — and with friends everywhere standing up against extreme energy. Real climate leadership looks like a U-turn on fracking!

From top-left, clockwise:

Fearless Summer reports hydro-fracking protests across the nation since Obama gave the green light to methane gas fracking.

-People with Food & Water Watch, New Jersey occupied the office of State Senator Gerald Cardinale to reject natural gas as a bridge fuel.
